"Creativity and Wellbeing"

Saturday 27th June  10 - 4pm

Ruamahunga Bay, Thames Coast

$125 inc light lunch and all materials

Limited to 6 participants

Deb's been running workshops for over 20 years, she’ll guide you in a gentle process which allows you to dive into your creative side and just explore, play, relax and enjoy. We provide a wide range of quality resources and materials; paint, pastels, charcoals, canvasses, copper, wire, shell, nature found objects, fabric, sculptural materials and much more. 

At the end of the workshop you’ll have created a unique piece of art ready to take home with you, plus your own personalized 'Connect to Creativity' talisman.

Deb is a painter, creativity tutor and self taught art therapist. She runs a variety of workshops, for both children and adults, including an outstanding women's retreat in Bali: Rejuvenate Spa Retreats.


Her workshops offer a hands on, person centered approach to discovering the joy of creativity and focus on play and exploration of various mediums, rather than achieving perfect technique. Deb believes that being in touch with ones inner creativity is essential to personal wellbeing.

To see more paintings you can visit, or for an enjoyable and inspiring day out visit The Little Gallery in both Tairua and Whangamata, Coromandel Peninsula, Aotearoa, New Zealand.

To come and stay a night or two at Debs and indulge in a few hours of creative fun in her studio, or for more information, click here.

I travel to Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranga to run workshops, or you can come to my home and studio which is located in beautiful Ruamahunga Bay, on the Thames coast. A peaceful setting, one minutes walk from the sea with a bubbling stream at the bottom of the garden. Individual sessions and workshops can either be held in my studio space or in the garden, weather permitting. If desired, overnight  accommodation is available in a beautifully appointed caravan at $65 per night.

What do people say about our workshops?

"I only got into one of Deb's Creativity Workshops when someone else pulled out, and I'm really glad I got the chance. 

I guess I'm like a lot of people who deny or doubt they have any creative artistic spark, but Deb enabled me to surprise myself. She skilfully read the group, and laid on a venue, atmosphere, setting, and subtle challenge that allowed me to get out of my head, and into an "ideas" frame of mind. Her skill as an artist made it easy for me to present the idea onto a canvas.


As a group we had a great day, and I came away with something that perfectly captured the moment, and that I still feel inspired by every time I look at it."    Jason Roxburgh
